Tottenham handed boost in their pursuit of 24-year-old midfielder

Tottenham Hotspur have been linked with a move for the Juventus midfielder Weston McKennie in recent weeks, writes the BH.

The 24-year-old United States international is expected to be sold in the upcoming windows as Juventus looks to raise funds for their own signings.

Apparently, Tottenham are keen on signing the player along with Borussia Dortmund as per Tuttosport.

The Italian giants are looking to bring in Joakim Maehle and they are open to selling McKennie in order to fund the transfer.

It will be interesting to see if Spurs can take advantage of the situation and sign the box-to-box midfielder in the upcoming window.

It is no secret that Spurs need to add more quality and depth to their midfield and the United States international could prove to be a quality long-term acquisition.

McKennie was rated highly during his time in Germany and he has the potential to develop into a quality player. He has impressed on World Cup duty with the USA.

His development has not progressed as expected since his move to Italy and a fresh start at Spurs could be what he needs right now.

A world-class coach like Antonio Conte could bring out the best in him and help fulfil his potential.

The arrival of the 24-year-old will allow Conte to rotate his key midfielders during the business end of the season, and the move would be beneficial for all parties.

It remains to be seen whether Spurs can agree on a reasonable fee with the Italian giants regarding the midfielder in the coming weeks now.
